"you wouldn't download a" trivia (cw: sketchy business practices) Show more
Hollywood-funded anti-piracy association Brein, the people who made the "you wouldn't download a car" ad, tried to stiff Melchior Rietveldt, the musician who composed the music for it, out of the vast bulk of his royalties. They told him the ad would only be shown at a local film festival, then stuck the ad on a bunch of DVDs and acted like they had full right to.
So, like, if you're ever wondering if anti-piracy capitalists hate piracy? The answer is "no". They'll steal and lie seven days a week and twice on Sundays. They just hate seeing people enjoy media without paying them.

I just learned that Katamari Damacy Reroll comes out on Friday
There is another game that Namco has had a significant role in developing that is also out on Friday
which might overshadow Katamari a little
Also, the highs are below 60 degrees all week. Time to bundle up in warm stuff.
What? I don’t do well with cooler temperatures!
I'm Coda (though IRL I go by Avery)! My OC is a PossBot, which is a synthetic possum that can do lots of neat things. My pronouns are they/them. I'm incredibly queer and don't have a gender! I'm also a programmer, musician, game developer, and artist. I love arcade games (especially shooters), making music, and generally just creating stuff.

Cyberpunk future where your cyborg body shifts to match digital blueprints, meaning your body can shift looks, gender, designs based off of a saved file. Because of this, home brew networks of hobby artists share their designs on online communities for people to share and download. People become free to experiment in their body shapes, gender, and aesthetic expression. This alarms certain people, and a public campaign is made to remind people not to go too far:

I'm a big teddy bear of a guy, and also as a dragon honestly. I spend most of my time working (I'm a sysadmin) or hanging out with my partners playing video games (MMOs mostly).
I have no idea how to use Mastodon, and I don't actually use social media much, but I like the concept of the platform so I'm trying it. (Twitter @inane_tweet is probably what I actually use the most often, though I've used most of them to the point of familiarity)
I've been posting on the internet for nearly 30 years, and my very first post was on alt.fan.dragon as a dumb kid. (I tried to roleplay, but I didn't know what a furry was or how to roleplay. I ended up describing myself as a 30 foot tall dragon, and (posting horribly out of sequence) I stomped through the town not even realizing why everyone else's reactions were so startled. I think my last post was in the town library, where the kindly librarian bent character a bit by explaining exactly why my posting was met with confusion.
Nice to meet you! I'll try not to get banned.
